The head of U.S. Special Operations Command has ordered a wide-ranging review of the Special Operations Forces’ culture and ethics after multiple scandals, NBC News reports.

"Recent incidents have called our culture and ethics into question and threaten the trust placed in us," Gen. Richard Clarke wrote in a memo sent to his command in reference to scandals involving Navy SEALs, Green Berets and members of Delta Force.

The review will specifically concern recruitment, training, and education about ethics, along with the methods special forces groups use to address misbehavior.

"The review will gather insights and observations from across our force and will draw upon the unique perspectives of leaders from internal and external entities," he wrote, according to ABC News.

"The American people must trust those who protect them," Clarke added. "This is about making us better."

Last month a platoon of Navy SEALs, one of whom has been accused of sexually assaulting a female service member, got sent home for drinking. Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher was recently accused of killing a captured ISIS fighter and was found to have posed for pictures with the dead body. His team testified that Gallagher stabbed the ISIS combatant, but that the medic killed him by severing his breathing tube. Gallagher was acquitted of six of the seven charges made against him.
